This free, full-day summit will include presentations by several of New York State's reuse leaders, discussions on how to develop new reuse initiatives in the State, and optional tours of the two Finger Lakes ReUse locations, CR0WD's 2022 exhibition, Historic Ithaca and Significant Elements, and others featured on the Reuse Trail of Tompkins County.
